  1. Dirk scored this whisky 90 points Super Administrator

    These 1976 vintages can be good, this one is no exception! If it had just s little bit less bitterness this would be 92 in my books. But I have to score it just a little bit lower.
    • Nose
      Blueberries, tropical fruits like mango, papaya. Then some pineapple? Cassis, sweet honey and melons.
    • Taste
      Sweet!! Honey, papaya, mango, pineapple, strawberries and blueberries. Great, great, great! Melons, cassis and a touch of cacao powder. This is very nice! Oranges and a lot of them.
    • Finish
      Bitter fruits, chocolate, some more bitterness in the finish and then a healthy dose of oak. A tad to much to make it a fruit bomb for my profile.

    Another superb Tomatin 1976 with a nice touch of exoticism. It increases in power throughout the tasting.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very exotic nose. Mango, papaya, passion fruit. Cranberry. Light sugar cane.
      Honey, raisins. Wood and its wax.
      Light dirty hay.
    • Taste
      92 92
      In the mouth it is soft, oily.
      The fruit is still there but sweeter and more defined.
      Papaya, passion fruit, pineapple, mango, orange.
      Dark chocolate, cocoa powder, wood, liquorice. Honey.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long and delicious finish on exotic camphor fruit. Pineapple, papaya, mango. Honey, pepper. A delight.

  4. wncvirus scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Lots of tropical fruits, orange, honey, melon
    Taste: A fairly large dose of wood, perfectly combined with fruit - oranges, strawberries, apricots, melon. Multi-layered flavor. Everything fits perfectly. Very good tasting!
    Rating 93 | 100 Long fruity finish. One of the best whisky I have had in my glass recently!

    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, toffee, chocolate, tobacco, dried fruits, little herbal, menthol, cough drops - still good
    • Finish

      Medium long, warm, more herbal, little drying

  6. OlivierSegers scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A little too much drying-bitterness combo in the finish to score really big...

  7. wataya scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    On the nose; Propolis, beeswax, cassis syrup, elderflower, dark berry mixture very concentrated, lavender, cherry sweets, furniture polish, caramel candies and ripe yellow kiwis. Taste: Cherry jam, dried plums in sugar, tarte tatin with a hint of turmeric, physalis in currant syrup. Finish: Fairly long with cherry candies, dark chocolate, espresso and pleasant notes of wood. Elegant and very balanced. Almost my favorite profile. n93, t92, f92

  8. Falnor scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very good expression of Tomatin '76, however there are better options. Back in 2011 I rated this 90pnt. Perhaps nowadays this rate would be higher...

    Still such a fruity profile! Sadly the Tomatins don't show it anymore.
